Power BI Weekly Issue 20: 13th August 2019

In the past week, we've been given the Power BI Service and Mobile July 2019 feature summary and the Paginated Reports August 2019 Feature Update. We've also been told that Connecting Azure Analysis Services to Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 is now possible - see a walkthrough of that integration here.
